It must be Christmas as the studios are in a very giving mood! Not only have they released the trailer for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and two teasers for ‘Prometheus,’ now comes the trailer for Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!’ In addition to the trailer, Warner Bros. also revealed the movie poster which you can see below. If you’re not familiar with the story, you can read the official synopsis below:

The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.

Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever…Gollum.

Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ will open in theaters December 14, 2012 but you can get a preview of the movie via the trailer below:
